We will remove dead animals found on the public highway (road, pavements and open spaces) and private land which isn’t part of a business or commercial premises. This includes a dead dog, cat, fox or other animals. Please call us on 0121 368 1177.

If the dead animal is at the rear of your property, you will need to make sure that someone is at home when we visit and that there is access (ie gates are unlocked) to the location. We do not allow cleansing staff to enter buildings.

If you find a dead animal outside our normal office hours (our office hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 5.30pm) please call 07889 117913.
